Dart Harbour Sea School is based in a very picturesque area of South Devon with several rivers and bays which enable us to offer all year round courses. In our opinion our cruising area gives the very best of Devon sailing. We are spoilt with our Yacht Clubs, and fantastic restaurants - all you need for the Dartmouth sailing experience.
